History and tradition
Schwäbisch Gmünd
Germany
The museum of Schwäbisch Gmünd was founded in 1876 and belongs to the oldest in Baden Württemberg. The focus of the rich collection is on religious art, silver craft and jewellery. The first part of the tour starts with geology and the Romans, and then concentrates on the Middle Ages - an important time in Schwäbisch Gmünd`s history - and ends in the period around 1700.

Special features include fossils from the Jura Sea, findings on the Limes border, Alemannic Graves, the time of the 'Hohenstaufen' with churches, monasteries and protective city walls, three church treasures – among them the Muenster treasure – the 'Palm Donkey', the 'true length of Corpus Christi' the silver cabinet with rosaries, filigree and Judaica, and graphic design by Hans Baldung Grien, Albrecht Dürer and Lucas Cranach sen.
